***** MARCH 2022 Coronavirus Update *****

Between June 2nd 2020 and July 20th 2021 we held two Zoom meetings per month on our normal 1st/3rd Tuesday meeting mornings. We had similar numbers joining in compared to previous numbers for “live” meetings. We also held a socially distanced bowls competition in August 2020 (repeated in 2021), and the walking group resumed 2nd/4th Tuesday socially distanced walks when allowed.

Live meetings resumed in August 2021, with appropriate covid precautions in place. Hopefully, Zoom meetings will be a thing of the past, although exceptionally we are planning a couple of live meetings later this year where the speaker is on Zoom, enabling us to hear speakers who do not live locally.


Knutsford Tatton Probus is a club for retired and semi-retired professional and business men, and those who have had a measure of responsibility in any field of endeavour.  Probus clubs meet regularly for fellowship, and to extend their members’ interests.

The Probus movement has spread internationally, and the scope of activities has widened. Each Probus group is autonomous and sets its own rules.

Our club, formed in 2001, meets on the first and third Tuesday mornings, every month at Crosstown Bowling and Social Club (for directions click here). After a short session devoted to club business, a well-qualified visiting speaker delivers an illustrated talk. Over the years we have had many excellent speakers, normally followed by a lively Q&A. Lists of forthcoming (and recent previous) speakers and topics can be found here.  After the talk, members can socialise at the bar. The meetings usually finish around mid-day.

Currently, there are also five social groups: Bowling (Crown Green, and Short Mat indoor); Bridge; Golf; IT; Walking. More details can be found here. (Beginners welcome!)

Additionally, there is an active social programme of events, such as: visits to theatres and other places of interest; wine-tasting evenings; lunches. Partners and guests are welcome to all of these events.

Visitors are welcome to attend events and meetings. If you are interested in finding out more about our club, please contact us. Contact details can be foundĀ here.
